In nature; Ozone formation occurs when the ultraviolet rays from the sun break down the oxygen in the atmosphere and turn it into ozone molecules. Technologically; It is obtained by the breakdown of oxygen in the air through the help of electric energy or from pure oxygen.

Ozone gas is the only natural disinfectant with commercial use. Once the ozone is completed, it always transforms into its raw material, oxygen. Ozone gas is inversely proportional to temperature. It is a gas with very high oxidation power and one of the strongest known disinfectants. The high oxidation force plays a very active role in the destruction of ozone microorganisms. Ozone disinfection, the germ disintegrates the cell membrane and the microbes melt away. Ozone gas water use also provides disinfection for about 4-10 minutes. Approximately 0.1-0.5 mg / l ozone kills almost all microorganisms. Ozone has 3100 times stronger disinfection effect than chlorine under the same conditions. Unstable structure of the ozone gas, disinfection process, as a result of 30 minutes in the open atmosphere, in closed packaging, 8-12 hours, without leaving any residual residues to the raw material to be converted into oxygen. In a report published by the World Health Organization in 1979, ozone disinfection was proposed.
Ozone gas into the class of reliable gases (GRAS) in 1997, the use of ozone in food began to become widespread. In the Turkish Food Codex, HACCP (Hazard Analysis in Critical Control Points) has become mandatory for safe food production. Thanks to its very strong oxidation and highly effective disinfection, it is used as a microbicide in treatment plants providing drinking water worldwide. High oxidation forces cause ozone to play a very effective role in the destruction of bacteria. In addition, ozone, due to the unstable structure of oxygen in the air is obtained by breaking down after completing the task of disinfection is always converted to oxygen, the raw material. The only disinfectant that does not leave residues and residues after disinfection makes Ozone gas a unique disinfectant.
